    Then with a Pentium II (intel chipset and the Via chipset is strongly recommended at this time for computer music) and max memory for its motherboard (380 MB) it was very correct.
    Finally, as I used Logic Audio comes with, everything was fine. As soon as I wanted to try another (Cubasis blackjack comes with a purchase) I never ever get something good.
    Where audio back to Logic. But it took me "redo" the entire PC to start over clean.

    OVERALL OPINION

    It was my 1st audio card. I since 1995 I think (it starts to date).
    before I was only noon. therefore synth and everything required for replay shebang. the recordings were made k7 (in 1994) and there not multitrack. he had to do everything by noon. then when it's ok to mix and record from noon on the magneto. yeah I said small zicos.

    Since I still use it for digitizing LPs.
    It keeps me from monopolizing the other PC with its fast track that could do very well yet.
    But the performance of the isis in this area are sufficient. So long as the PC on which it is running ..... and then also it amuses me. a certain nostalgia in fact.

    In fact, the big disadvantage of vinyl is that it is a carrier of another era. It wears longer it is used.
    Where the scritch scratch scrtoch that settles over time.
    No, I'm not one of those "melted" who swear by vinyl. However some productions have never been and will probably never recorded on CD.
    I learned, however, that a former base of the National Library is precisely this kind of preservation.
    But that's just for heritage preservation. Nobody can listen or obtain a copy of digitized recording.
    So I make them myself with this card.
    She recorded quietly while I do something else or just that I listen to the music.
    This is to go on a reliable in terms of what exists today.
    Obviously the quality I'm looking for today is not primarily the appointment. However these are the interpretations of the tripe zicos group or tails I'm trying to save for my entourage.
    So just for that I gladly would put a good score on the map although these are now much more efficient.
    But how Guillemot treated us to the arrival of XP, then triple revenge "0" pointing doubled!
    In short, if you have small needs not too expensive and you have an old PC lying around in a corner, go ahead.
    Otherwise buy something else. (I'm very happy with the "fast track pro" to which I said a little trick on this forum)

    The "PCI" this set has standard I / O (Line in and out, Mic Port Midi / games), and a web of internal link connects to a riser connection with the outer casing. This card features a RAM Expansion for function "sampler" and soundfont management and a DSP chip.
    The outer casing is equipped with 8 analog inputs and 4 outputs 6.35 jack, MIDI thru in out, in out and SPDIF coax and optical in.
    The recording mode is accomplished by "direct to disc", ensuring very low latency. Converters are accurate and do not generate virtually no harmonics.
    A great little system for a good start in home studio.

    UTILIZATION

    This card offers a great stability, and its interface facilitates the mapping of I / O settings and levels. ASIO drivers are compatible despite his age.
    Mode ensures direct to disk latency below 40ms.

    GETTING STARTED

    Mechanically speaking, the installation is a breeze, with respect to drivers, ibid. The only real difficulty is to understand the correspondence cursors console settings compared to I / O The manual is pretty vague about it here.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I started the home studio with this product in 1999, and I also apparent from time to time, as part soundfont is just perfect. The DAW used is not the one that came with (Logic Audio), but Magix Music Studio 2005, still compatible W98. Employing this medieval OS is not very disabling because the PC used is disproportionate to W98 with its 1GHz processor and 256MB of ram :)
    The HDD used for multi-track taken is SCSI, which ensures optimal access!
    Not a wrinkle, and ergonomics nice, this sound card still has many services to make ...

    I bought it for what it can do
    MIDI and audio interface
    to play at home and save

    UTILIZATION

    it has not always been perfectly stable
    but now it has been since 2002
    seamless
    I record with cool edit pro ISIS
    I drive for MIDI with Orion
    it works very well without any problems

    Logic Pro ISIS has never fully worked

    GETTING STARTED

    the installer will ask to have a little pioneer spirit
    it was not plug and play, it was not enough to plug a USB, it was necessary to open and tools, an era ... music and the joys of DIY

    Recorder Cool Edit Pro that came with ISIS is still relevant, he recorded a very practical and I have never found better

    logic pro ISIS was not easy for a beginner and I believe I lost a lot of time trying to run some things that have never worked, it was good for MIDI, but for audio, fortunately I found it easier or I would have discouraged

    I remain a fan of this card which at the time was the best value and which today seems not to age, as the PC is, I keep

    It offers a very practical external rack but it is no longer the only desomrais in this case
    FAU warn you that with a celeron 400 it starts only 1 in 20 g depui that a celeron 766 she walks all the tps
    otherwise it has good sound quality without it works in 24 bit 44.1Khz quin is the standart henceforth
    it also has a nice problem of latency m head prevents use of virtual sampler

    no problem playing at the same time my mic recording is not terrible I do not know whether it's coming from the sound card or micro m with a person confirms that the card in. props made terrible noise level on record the voices and saw that it looms over the group wanting to Save several voices together
    Note that a few lon record two inputs simultaneously
    May the recording quality is good (exept voice)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 3 years with one year or it shows
    c a card that has an extraordinary value for price asser pourkoi c in the same context and in retrospect I will make the same choice agietrai May I m a little more to make it work I think always time to buy a 24/96 TerraTec because FAU evolved in. May all on the Isis for me yet
